I am a registered midwife from Surrey, UK and live with my partner and 5 children including a set of twins. I have practised midwifery in various settings throughout London and Surrey over the past 10 years covering both the NHS and private sectors.
During my time within the NHS, I have covered all aspects of midwifery care including antenatal care as a community midwife, labour and birth care on both birthing suites & birth centres and postnatal care on both the ward and in the community.
My passion for helping women and birthing people to achieve a positive birth experience encouraged me to train as a hypnobirthing instructor which I did with with Katharine Graves back in 2011. This not only enabled me to help women but also helped me achieve a calmer, happier birth for myself!
I currently work as a midwife outside of the NHS providing support to new and expectants both on and offline. I’m in the process of writing my first book and am dedicated to ensure that prenatal education is inclusive of all birthing people, paying particular attention to those from marginalised backgrounds.
I regularly contribute to the press and media publications, appearing in the likes of Grazia, Mother & Baby magazine, Marie Claire, Huffpost, BBC, Channel 4 and more. further details can be found here
